Horse Face

"Occasionally however, some souls manage to escape their clutches to roam on earth under the guise of a human facade, but Yim Los far-seeing eyes means Ox-Head and Horse-Face are typically dispatched in time to capture these lost souls. In the Chinese classic novel Journey to the West, at one point Horse-Faces and Ox-Heads are sent to capture Sun Wukong, the Monkey King. Sun Wukong overpowers them and scares them away. He then breaks into the Underworld and crosses out the names of himself and his people from the record of living souls, hence granting immortality to himself and his monkey followers."

I wouldn't argue with him!
Interesting info with your colourful horse head.
Another good shot of these strange figures, Ayush.
Horse face is a well dressed scary creature.
These things are quite spectacular aren't they.
This is much scarier that the rear ends of horses I was posting recently grin
Very impressive indeed Ayush!

For a moment I thought this is Elizabeth's posting - steer roping in Arizona.
Funny, when you tell a person he has a horse-face, you can get slapped.
Not a gift horse then smile
wow i like this! Thanks for sharing Ayush!
Yikes! Those sharp spikes on his bat could really do some serious damage, Ayush.
